Fields Magazine: The Design Issue + Upcoming "Migrant Talks"

Last year, while living in Accra, I met the dynamic Saran Koly, editor-in-chief of Fields Magazine, a bilingual (French/English) contemporary African publication focused on alternative reflections on international affairs, human rights, arts and social justice. In Saran, I immediately found a kindred spirit. Through Fields, she hopes to build a community of "global daydreamers" stretching across Africa and the diaspora.

I'm honored to be a part of the team of writers contributing to Fields' "Design Issue" which takes readers from Brazil to Colombia via Burkina Faso, Ghana, South Africa, Senegal, and the U.S. " to explore the stories of makers who decided to live their life by design and not by default."

You can buy your copy here, and look out for my pieces on Ghanaian architect Joe Osae-Addo, experience curator Tameshia Rudd-Ridge, and entrepreneur Yvette Ansah of Accra's Cafe Kwae.

P.S. Watch this space in the next few weeks for a link to an episode of Fields' "Migrant Talks" series with Nargisse Benbakkou of My Moroccan Food (which I proudly co-produced).
